I'd have to guess that the media can't miss up an opportunity to report on the whole "leaf/tree" association and as such is more likely to report these cases. I'd bet we would all be surprised at how many cars are hit by trees each year that never make the news...

Tree knocked and wants its Leaf back. Ba-dum ching!

(I'm the owner of the blue Leaf that got crushed last Tuesday)

Just signed away the title to the insurance company today and got a total loss payout. In the process of buying a 2015 Leaf SV + Quick Charge! During the test drive, was surprised by all the differences. No more electronic parking brake, heated seats/steering wheel, heat pump heater, etc. Hopefully this one will last me longer.

May I suggest that there is a strong selection bias at play here?

Nobody on this forum notices "tree falls on car" stories that don't involve a LEAF because nobody on this forum cares about non-LEAF cars getting flattened, and such events practically never make national headlines.

I'm sure if you scour the local newspapers from across the country you'll find plenty of stories about trees falling on cars. :roll:

Glad you're ok, you looked pretty stunned in the video. Trees are always looking to get hit so look out for them.
